Featuring 20 of the world's most skilled Irish dancers and musicians, including Justin Boros from Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance, CAROL OF THE KING, THE IRISH DANCE CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR brings an original inspiring Christmas story of love and salvation to life that transports the audience to a mystical time and place of heroes and redemption.
Winter has fallen across the land. King Solomon and his kingdom prepare for the Christmas season celebration. While cold winds caress the landscape, one gust brought an unearthly chill not felt before. The dark sorceress Circe and her ghostly legion known as The Frost are upon the land. She has trapped the legendary King Solomon under her spell in an attempt to steal the throne and expel Christmas once and for all. Unable to free himself and carry forth the holiday spirit, hope remains lost for all those in the kingdom...until now.
In a brave effort to rescue their king and preserve the spirit of the season, the kingdom has called upon Solomon's loving companion Brighid, his younger brother Aidan and the Guardians to restore harmony to the land. With the frigid forces attempting to break the will of the crown and banish Christmas for eternity, will darkness reign or will victory be seized from Circe's icy grip in the legend that has come to be known as Carol of the King.
The world-renowned Irish dance troupe performs lighting fast hard shoe rhythms and graceful soft shoe jigs to an original epic orchestral soundtrack featuring many Holiday favorites, while state of the art lighting and Christmas spirit ignite the stage into an explosive display of dance and music.
Strength, agility and precision formulate the fast-paced and breath-taking holiday experience on stage as the cast performs to the heart-pounding and fluid symphonic music that will enthrall the Sondheim audience and all across North America.
